PEACEFUL & RELAXING
Named after a landmark rock upon which a small church is built, Monolithos beach lies on the east coast of Santorini about 9 kilometers from Fira. Although close to the popular Kamari Beach, Monolithos is much more peaceful and less crowded. Among worth seeing attractions is the old Tomato Canning Factory, the first one in Santorini.
Monolithos Beach is family-oriented thanks to the shallow waters and the playground area that make it suitable for young children. It is a typical beach of Santorini, long enough with black and grey sand and crystal clear waters. A part of it is organized with sunbeds, umbrellas and a lifeguard tower, while another part is more secluded, ideal for privacy, serenity and relaxation under the natural shade that the trees provide. Admirable rock formations, sculpted by the salt and the wind, face the sea, offering a superb view. The whole picture is supplemented by small cafés and traditional taverns where one can complete a restful day at the beach and taste traditional dishes.
